Hey you two--this is news, albeit not terribly surprising, but is it well known that Jerry had offensive body odor or were his blue T's food stained regularly in latter years? Just wondering if this is a bit of trivia I missed over the years, or just a joke...

Hey WT; Jerry's lack of grooming has been spelled out over the years in a couple of interviews, the one I recall was with Ozzie Ahlers. Ozzie let it be known that Jerry would show up for rehearsals with a cloud of funk around him and heavy beard dandruff showing on his pocket tees.

I for one think it may not have been beard dandruff, but crumbs from a hidden food stash within said beard. Brunch, of a sort.

Ah, thanks--and of course, I meant to say "black pocket Ts" (at least the ones I recall were black). With all he was doing, suppose cleaning up was the first item to move down the priority list. I have so little to do it has moved up on mine, although at this age it doesn't accomplish as much...and once the beard was grey, the food bits are harder to see (or is that my eyesight?).
